On this special training, the O&M instructors teach firefighters a more subtle use of senses and the instructors show that it is not only vision that can help orientation.
Through working out, presenting and acquiring the firefighters’ O&M method, embedding it into daily practice, and adapting the unified communication code, firefighters will be able to move self-confidently and safely in unfavourable visual conditions.
Using and applying this knowledge to make cognitive amd overview maps, this increases the efficiency of operations.
